Groudon is most likely based on the Hebrew legends of Behemoth, the unconquerable primal master of the land. Its counterparts were Leviathan and Ziz. Just as Groudon is in conflict with Kyogre, it was said that at the end of time Behemoth and Leviathan would start a battle that would kill them both. Groudon's appearance also draws inspiration from the Tyrannosaurus and from various species of Ankylosauria such as Euoplocephalus. Groudon can also be based on Maylupa, which means the "owner of the lands", the lord of the lands and agricultural fields.
Groudon's name appears to be a combination of ground and don, which is Spanish for lord - hence, lord of the ground. The suffix -don is also used in the names of many dinosaurs and large animals, and means "tooth". Groudon has large teeth, and also somewhat resembles a dinosaur. Although possibly a coincidence, its name also includes 土 do, ground, or don, the Japanese onomatopoeia for a very loud crashing noise, which would be made by Groudon's feet when it walks.
